Swiss Hot Dog


Coyote Cafe

We can’t even talk about this hot dog it’s so good. You have to taste it for yourself.

“I’m very happy about being named Best Hot Dog in the Vail Valley,” said Ernst Larese, owner and operator of Lionshead’s Swiss Hot Dog.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

When asked, “what makes Swiss hot dogs the best?” it became clear why Larese has been in business in Vail for so many years.

“Unique spices and special sausages from Denver,” Larese admitted, are the foundation of his restaurant’s success.

“I’ve got customers from Kuwait, Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia” who have been “been coming back for 20 years because of the taste.”
